PASSIONATE PLEAS FROM OPPONENTS, SUPPORTERS OF STATUE
In a split decision, the Nottoway School Board has voted to re-open school for face-to-face instruction but to postpone the first day of classes until Sept. 8th -- the day after Labor Day -- to give the division more time for planning.
Nottoway Supt. of Schools, Dr. Tameshia Grimes, outlined the division’s re-opening plan at Thursday night’s School Board meeting. Two days earlier, at a board worksession, several principals and department heads were in attendance, including (upper right) Director of Maintenance Robbie Templeton and Director of Transportation Jay Strawser. Blackstone Primary School principal Dr. Carrie Graveley also was among those listening closely. Students will start Sept. 8th and will attend either Monday-Tuesday or Thursday-Friday. Pre-K students will go all four days. Schools will be closed on Wednesdays for intense cleaning and teacher professional development.
Blackstone Police are investigating a home invasion here Sunday night that left an elderly man beaten-up.
